Yountville or Napa in February??

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 3-4 night stay in the Napa area mid February with my boyfriend. We are very into both food and wine, and are looking for accomodations in which are within walking distance to the wineries. I'm trying to to at least narrow down my search and need some input as to where the better wineries are and which are within walking distance - in Napa Valley or Yountville? Or should I be looking elsewhere?

As far as lodging, $100/night and less would be nice. I'm not sure if any lodging places are actually situated on a vineyard, or anything that resembles "Tuscan". Being both Yountville and Napa have walkable distance tasting rooms, where would you suggest I stay so that we could walk to dinner?

I would like to do at least one tour. I side more with whites (riesling, viognier, albarino), but am slowly getting into reds (pino noir, malbec). If scheduling appointments is needed, that's fine. That would make or break the decision to visit a winery.

Overall, I'm looking for Tuscan-like scenery and reasonablly close (driving distance) wineries to do tastings (and possibly a tour) by day, and to be able to have great restaurants and bars within walking distance by night.

Thank you for your help :)
